What is Shadow Creation?

Oh shucks! I forgot to tell you what shadow creation is. Shadow creation is a photo editing feature that allows you to get better effect out of your images. Various photo editing applications, such as Photoshop, offer this feature. You basically just add a shadow to a picture making it more attractive. It allows us to bring more attention to what the picture is supposed to communicate.

Types of shadows in Photoshop

Original Shadow

Original Shadow is where you retain a picture’s shadow through various backgrounds. Whenever you take a picture of an object in the real world, it has a shadow. When it comes to editing you would want to maintain that same shadow through various backgrounds. So, you have to manipulate photoshop features and carefully extract the shadow and object from their original background. It is suitable for real life pictures where replicating the shadow is near impossible. It is also good since the natural shadow always brings out the best in the image. No amount of artificial editing can match up to the original shadow.

Ðrop Shadow

A drop shadow is where the outline of the object is created and filled with black or grey. It can be all round the object but it is best when it is offset to one direction. The edges are usually smoothly faded instead of having a sharp distinction. To get a more realistic feel, the color of the background is darkened within the outline instead of making it black or grey. This shadow gives the impression that the object is raised above the other objects or the background. In most cases it is used with buttons and text in menu features and publications.

Mirror and Reflection shadow

It is basically how your image would look if you placed it on top of a floating and mirror. This is why it is also called reflective shadow. Here the shadow has color and also the same features as the object. The only difference is that they are upside down or sideways depending on the orientation of your shadow. The depth of the shadow can be adjusted to give a fading effect. It is usually really effective when properly used. It really emphasizes on the object in question and it is really beautiful in the end. It can be used with any picture or image.
